$20 and Under Perfume Sampler Sets Worth Hauling!

Oddly enough there are a good deal of new perfume sampler sets popping up at Sephora.com and all of them are $20 or under. Gotta love that right? I say odd because typically you’ll see these sets start to pop up around Christmas. I think perhaps we’re seeing a flow of them now due to the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner. I’ve gotten some really interesting Valentine’s Day gifts in my time but I don’t think I ever had anyone gift me fragrance for the Holiday. But beauty brands tend to push it for the holiday for some reason or another.

The good news is you don’t technically have to wait for a boy or a girl to gift you these sets. They are quite inexpensive and well worth picking up and gifting yourself! This is a great way to try some nice fragrances on a budget.

Histories de Parfums The Discovery Collection $20
I have last year’s Histories de Parfumes Discovery Set and I thought it was a fantastic purchase. This new set is just as wonderful! At $20 bucks you get 10 x 0.07 oz mist bottles that include some of the brand’s best scents including the newest one, Not a Blue Bottle, which is a delightfully warm amber scent that I adore.

Scents include:

  • Not A Blue Bottle
  • 1828
  • 1725
  • 1740
  • 1804
  • 1826
  • 1899
  • 1969
  • Ambre 114
  • Nior Patchouli

Eight & Bob Discovery Set $18
Eight & Bob recently launched at Sephora.com much to my delight as it means that Sephora is becoming more and more serious about niche house fragrances. If you have the time I highly suggest googling Albert Fouquet and JFK for the delight tale about the name of this brand and how it came to be. It’s a very cute story! This particular set includes four of Albert Fouquet’s private collection. Eight & Bob is essential a men’s fragrance brand but I find their scents are quite unisex and well worth exploring.

You get:

  • Andrea
  • Cap d’Antibes
  • Egypt
  • Mémoires De Mustique

Atelier Cologne Perfume Palette $18
Bring a touch of the Spring into your gloomy Winter with this Atelier sampler. I always find Atelier fragrances refreshing with a touch of zing! This inexpensive set brings together 8 x 0.07 mists of some of Atelier’s most popular blends like Vanille Insensée!

You get:

  • Orange Sanguine
  • Clémentine California
  • Rose Anonyme
  • Vanille Insensée
  • Santal Carmin
  • Oud Saphir
  • Sud Magnolia

  • Colette

Juliette Has a Gun Wardrobe Discovery Kit $18
Much to my delight Juliette Has a Gun has updated their sample set to include their newest fragrance, Mmmm, as well as 7 other fragrances from their collection!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Thanks to one of your posts, I ordered blind SJP Stash perfume elixr set on sale 1/2 price and love it! Its right up my alley and reminds of my beloved Kate Spade Boyfriend which I wear all the time. What set from this post would you recommend for me?
